    About The Work

    In the Ex Libris series, an artist is invited to select a book that has a special meaning to him or her. It is then reprinted by Salon Verlag and accompanied by an original bookplate, signed and numbered by the artist. In this case the book is one of the first ski manuals ever published, The Wonders of Ski-Ing: A Method of Correct Ski-Ing and Its Applications to Alpine Running by Hannes Schneider & Arnold Fanck from 1933. Peter Doig created a new cover for this book.

    Like many of Doig's enigmatic images, this work is drawn from deeply personal memories and filtered through a dreamlike lenses with otherworldly hues. His works combine his own memories and experiences with photographic imagery, imagined or real.
